Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Blisters around the anus of a baby most often occur due to constipation (constipation). Passing hard and solid stool can cause irritation to the wound around the anus, which not only makes blisters, but also sore, painful, and even bleeding. In addition to the consequences of giving MPASI too early, constipation in infants can also occur due to toilet training that is too early, lack of fluids, blockages in the digestive tract, hormonal disorders, side effects of drugs, and so on. Ideally, MPASI is only given after the baby is 6 months old. Although in some cases, MPASI can also be given earlier if there are medical indications that require it.
Not only constipation, abrasions around the anus may also indicate an infection (for example due to fungus or bacteria), irritation (for example due to scratching, inappropriate use of baby diapers or soap), allergies, intestinal inflammation, anal fissures, and so on. This condition is not always dangerous as long as it gets the right treatment and fast.
Here are some of our suggestions:
Stop feeding the baby first, wait until the age of 6 months, just give the baby exclusive breastfeeding. Later, when starting to give MPASI to the baby, start from the consistency of liquid MPASI, then gradually to thick, then solid. Also start from a small volume, then gradually. Keep giving your baby enough milk until at least 2 years old. Always keep the baby's anus area clean, not moist, but also not too dry Give the baby a diaper that is the right size (not too narrow), and is made of soft material and is highly absorbent Not recklessly giving oil, ointments, or any handling to the anus blisters when your baby has no history of allergies, you can apply olive oil, coconut oil, or baby oil around the abusive anus (but do not get into the anus) If within 3 days the blisters in the anus do not improve, immediately check it to see a doctor or a pediatrician to be handled well, right?
I hope this helps.
